Cub Scouting is an exciting program for boys in grades first through fifth. As a parent of a Cub Scout, you will want to ensure your son has a great time each and every pack meeting. That is why we have put together the ultimate Cub Scout Pack Meeting Plan that includes sixteen meetings with ideas for activities, challenges, and awards.

Meeting 1: Welcome to Cub Scouts!

Start your new Cub Scout year off with a warm welcome! During your first meeting, introduce everyone to the pack’s leaders, review the Cub Scout motto, and outline expectations for the coming year.

Activity Ideas:

• Have each Scout make a name tag with his name and den number on it.

• Have the Scouts stand in a circle and introduce themselves to the group.

• Lead the Scouts in a few rounds of the Cub Scout Cheer or one of their traditional songs.

• Give out requirements for the Bobcat Rank, and encourage each Scout to strive for this achievement.

Award Ideas:

• Give each Scout a pin or patch that symbolizes the pack’s identity and the year they joined.

• Give each Scout the official Cub Scout Pocket Flag, which is a token of membership in the pack.

Activity Ideas:
